The Palestine Problem (1945)
- Summaries (1)
Part of the March of Time series, this edition (Volume 10, Number 1) from 1945 deals with the issue of Palestine. With World War II at an end, the issue of Jewish migration to the region was again at the forefront. Great Britain was mandated to keep the peace in Palestine and had as far back as 1917 pledged to support a homeland in the region for the Jewish people. At the time, Arabs outnumbered Jews by approximately 2 to 1 but in many areas, the half-million Jews made great strides in turning a desert into a garden with agriculture a mainstay. Industry, such as boat building, was also coming into its own. On the Arab side, countries in the region have made it quite clear that any attempt to increase Jewish immigration to the region would lead to an armed response.
